100xCiencia.3 is the successor to last year's 100xCiencia.2, which was devoted to "Co-creating value" and Technology Transfer, and the 2015 first 100xCiencia on "Comunicating Frontier Science". The subject of this year’s event, "Bridging Science and Society" will underscore the importance of scientific education, citizen science and the participation of society in the present and future of science.

The 100xCiencia.3, co-organized by CNIO and SOMMa, will gather together SOMMa members and other attendees to share ongoing projects on science education, citizen science and public engagement that can encourage society and us to continue working together. Different stakeholders relevant for science and society will participate in roundtables focused on timely and important topics.

The challenges and opportunities offered by citizen science and science education will be discussed over three different round tables (see whole Agenda here):

  • The media as channeling agents for science
  • Scientists and science policy together for society
  • Scientific empowerment of society

100xCiencia.3 will have Dr. Robert Huber, 1988 Chemistry Nobel Prize, as keynote speaker, to start the event on a high note with an exciting talk on "The century of vision: Protein structures for drug research".

Both SOMMa and external partners members are welcome to register to attend the meeting (register here).

Only registered participants are eligible to submit an abstract for an oral presentation (8-min) or poster, on the following subjects:

  • Science Education Initiatives
  • Citizen Science and Public Engagement Initiatives

Stay tuned for upcoming news! 

Abstract submission deadline: October 18, 2018
Registration deadline: November 2, 2018

  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
